Fighting Parkinson’s, and twelve years symptom free

On June 12, 2010, twelve years ago today, I awoke with my remaining symptoms gone and all of my physical abilities restored, symptom free, fully recovery, cured.

When the full recovery arrived that day, it was part of the flow of life. Parkinson’s was a symptom that I had gotten out of balance in the flow of my life, and my recovery was a reflection that I had gotten back into balance (soul, mind, and body). 

A big part of being able to finish my recovery was this understanding of the flow of life. I already has shifted to a way of life of acceptance of what arrived in my life, surrender (that I was not owed an explanation for what arrived in my life), and gratitude for my life and everything in it. I already had shifted from a judgmental mind to a compassionate heart.

I was ready, I was healed, and upon letting go of the final life-long issue I had carried, “making the other people happy to my own detriment” out of fear of potential conflict and reprisal as a result of having my full recovery, I let go and received the blessing of my full recovery.

To show you that I knew even then that the recovery was part of the flow of life, and that life continued to flow, here is what I wrote announcing my full recovery:

Friday night before I went to bed, I meditated on this realization and let go. On Saturday morning, I was symptom free. On Sunday, I cleaned the garage. It was the first time I ever have viewed cleaning the garage as a blessing.

My friends, thank you for sharing in the last twelve years with me. I am grateful to be hanging out with all of you. Today, I did not clean the garage, but I did work in the yard and Sally and I did some weeding…today, like twelve years ago today, is another day in my flow of life. I am joyful and I am grateful.

This evening, Sally and I will have a small celebration of twelve years cured of Parkinson’s.

And, the celebration continues. To continue the celebration, I have decided that it is time to make a full length video of each individual Recipe exercise and present them periodically on the blog. I will put them on YouTube and insert them into the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. First installment will be Medical Qigong for the Liver later this week.

I feel that every single one of you has the opportunity to heal from Parkinson’s just as I did. Please know that you are special simply because you exist. We are a world-wide family of warriors and friends, so nobody ever is alone. 

You can do this!

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

    Great Idea with the renewing videos. The recovery-machine is rolling and unstoppable. Sometimes it needs a little detour to Recoveryville, but it’s going to make it. Congrats to both of you to your 12-years recover-anniversary.
    Bye Uwe

    Thank you Howard! Maria and I are so grateful for you and Sally

  5. Dora says:

    Congratulations Howard ! I have observed that you as well as many of the others that have healed have done it by balancing the mind or working on the mind more so than the physical aspect. Am I correct? I am concentrating on more meditations lately because it seems that where the mind goes everything else follows. Please correct me if I am wrong

  6. Waseema says:

    Congratulations Howard. Inspiring as always 🙏❣️

  7. Heather says:

    Congratulations Howard and thank you. Today is the anniversary of my 68 yrs on this planet. My recovery will be reached if I stay on the path. I am re-reading Suzuki’s book Not Always So, Ekhart Tolle The power of now and some of your old posts to keep mentally strong. No pasaran! Much love to you, fellow warriors and not forgetting me.xx

  13. Mary D says:

    Will we get a link for this or get it with your blog each week?

    • Howard says:

      Hi Mary,

      Thank you. The videos will periodically come with the blog and will be on my You Tube channel and my resources page on my website as permanent placements.


  14. Val H says:

    Oh, Howard! What an amazing thing to reflect on, even after 12 years. It’s like having two birthdays – the day you were born and the day you were born again, without Parkinson’s. How wonderful. Congratulations and, also, thank you for blazing a trail because, without you, none of us would be in with a shout.
    I would love it if all the warriors were at a symposium with you, toasting your recovery.
    Thank you so much for the gift you are giving US. I am sure the videos will be tremendously helpful, both in terms of technique and motivation.
    I wish you and Sally a joyful celebration and many more happy times together, enjoying the minutiae of life.
    I’m going to meditate on your flow of life theme because I think it provides an opportunity to cast Parkinson’s onto the currents and wave goodbye.
    Thank you for everything you do for us. It’s much appreciated.

  15. Lynn says:

    Hi Howard, congratulations on your 12th anniversary of being in perfect health, in mind body & spirit.. I think until the day you leave this wonderful life, you will never forget waking up on the 12th of June 2010, with the pure joy of being symptom free. For now, the rest of us can only imagine but thanks to your beautiful generous heart and soul and guidance, we will all realise our day of freedom too. Bless you my friend. We all love and appreciate you dearly.💕xx

  19. Russell S says:

    Congratulations, Howard, on the anniversary of your full recovery, and gratitude for your generous presence online, in email, in coaching, and for the example you set. This warrior treasures stumbling onto your site and hearing that there is a path to recovery. What a difference that makes! Thank you.

  20. Rabindar says:

    Fantastic, 12 years of full recovery from PD. Enjoy life with Sally. We too hope that we will one day recovery and experience the flow of life, be joyful and be grateful.
    Thank you for dedication and support you give us every week. You are an inspirational to all of us.

  21. Graham S says:

    Congratulations Howard, I look forward to seeing the video’s. I watched the old ones and still do my morning exercises based on them, particularly the Liver Clearing one with the side and forward bends, this just feels so right. I do still find it hard to love myself and not be critical of my own perceived weaknesses and failings even though I know I am a better person than the one I see in myself. I do hope it all clicks into place one day. However I do find your blog and literature very supportive, so thank you and I look forward to writing my book and celebrating my re-birth. Life is good, life is good and so am I. (Still drug, alcohol and meat free and feel clean thanks to you).
    Cheers Howard.

  22. Judy M says:

    Love and blessings, Judy

    Hi Howard,

    Congratulations with this result. Already being so long free of Parkinson is really something to celebrate. Enjoy it as much as you can.


  26. Rosalie says:

    Hi Everyone, I’m a grateful newbie and so happy to have found hope when the world says there is none for PD recovery. Thank you so much, Howard, and congratulations on being 12 years cured!

    • Graham S says:

      Welcome, it’s a good support and feels right. Especially to be drug free and be able to just type a comment that’s read by people going through the same challenge that we all are. I hope one day you and all of us will all be symptom free.

  27. Rick says:

    Fantastic achievement and inspiration to us all! May many more recover. Thank you for sharing Howard 😀🥹😀
